New Research Links Climate Science Denial To Conspiracy Theories

by crazy_inventor Friday, Sep. 21, 2012 at 1:48 PM

Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, a cognitive psychologist at the University of Western Australia (UWA), is about to publish research which shows that a strong indicator of the rejection of climate science is a willingness to accept conspiracy theories.

Research Links Climate Science Denial To Conspiracy Theories, But Skeptics Smell A Conspiracy.

Graham Readfearn

Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, a cognitive psychologist at the University of Western Australia (UWA), is about to publish research which shows that a strong indicator of the rejection of climate science is a willingness to accept conspiracy theories.


http://websites.psychology.uwa.edu.au/labs/cogscience/documents/LskyetalPsychScienceinPressClimateConspiracy.pdf

In the paper, Lewandowsky concludes that "endorsement of a cluster of conspiracy theories... predicts rejection of climate science". The research also claims a correlation between people who endorse free-market economics and the "rejection of climate science".


"There's a fair bit of previous literature to suggest that conspiratorial thinking is part of science denial. Conspiratorial thinking is where people would seek to explain events by appealing to invisible, powerful collusions amongst individuals, rather than taking events at face value. The absence of evidence for the conspiracy is sometimes taken as evidence of its existence and any contradictory evidence is itself embedded into the conspiracy."




In his paper, Lewandowsky adds: "Endorsement of the free market also predicted the rejection of other established scientic findings, such as the facts that HIV causes AIDS and that smoking causes lung cancer."

Given the well documented links between free market think-tanks and climate science misinformation, this finding isn't surprising.

But back to that "conspiracist ideation" trait which Lewandowsky and other researchers, such as Pascal Diethelm and Martin McKee, have identified among people who reject science.

Because rather fittingly, no sooner had Lewandowsky's paper begun to make headlines than the world's loose, nimble and definitely-not-conspiring network of climate skeptic blogs began to construct their own conspiracies about Lewandowsky's research.

The survey was conducted online and Lewandowsky's research team approached climate blogs requesting they post a link to the survey. Some eight "pro-science" blogs agreed to post the link, which gained 1147 responses.

Lewandowsky's researchers also emailed five popular skeptic blogs, but none of those approached posted the link to the questionnaire.

But had Lewandowsky actually fabricated the claim he had emailed five sceptic blogs, asked Anthony Watts, Jo Nova and others, smelling a consipracy.

Steve McIntyre, a long-time mining industry consultant and active climate sceptic, even encouraged blog readers to email the ethics department at Lewandowsky's university.

"If Lewandowky’s claim about five skeptic blogs was fabricated, it appears to me that it would be misconduct under university policies," wrote McIntyre.

Once McIntyre had come down from the conclusion he had just jumped to, he later admitted that actually, he had been emailed by one of Lewandowsky's researchers after all but offered a "dog ate my homework" excuse.

Meanwhile, Lewandowsky says he has been "inundated" with requests to release the names of the four remaining bloggers his team contacted.

But since the approaches to bloggers were conducted on the presumption of privacy, the academic has asked his university's ethics committee and the Australian Psychological Society if he is free to release their identities.

Not content to wait, Australian skeptic blogger Simon Turnill has sent a Freedom of Information request to UWA asking for Lewandowsky's emails.


"So now there's a conspiracy theory going around that I didn't contact them. It's a perfect, perfect illustration of conspiratorial thinking. It's illustrative of exactly the process I was analysing. People jump to conclusions on the basis of no evidence. I would love to be able to release those emails if given permission, because it means four more people will have egg on their faces. I'm anxiously waiting the permission to release this crucial information because it helps to identify people who engage in conspiratorial thinking rather than just searching their inboxes."



Lewandowsky revealed that two of the five skeptic blogs approached even replied to the email they were sent.

One stated "Thanks. I will take a look” and another asked "Can you tell me a bit more about the study and the research design?"

Perhaps an inbox search for these phrases might help some bloggers to move on from their latest conspiracy theory.

Or maybe, just maybe, the real story is that the New World Order hacked their email accounts or a CIA operative secretly dropped a memory-lapse drug into their fake moon juice?

But they don't accept the idiocy of global warming? Or global cooling? Or global dimming? Or whatever the tards are shopping this week?

Yes, global warming causes biter cold, and up is down, and ignorance is strength, and freedom is slavery, and you too can make ice cubes in your microwave.

Weekly Fukushima update

by crazy_inventor Sunday, Sep. 23, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Weekly Fukushima update for.

september twenty third, 2012

Radiation levels over the past week have averaged around 170 counts per minute which is about 15 times, normal background level.

No alpha emissions have been detected in rain samples.


the EPA radiation graphs, are becoming more and more useless and unreliable.

They used to update 8 times a day then went to 4 times a day.

at that point, it was no longer useful to avoid exposure since the chart didn't show spikes in radiation, until hours after it occured.

then the chart was down, for over 2 months.

when it finally came back, it was updated normally for a few weeks, but soon started lagging way behind, up to days behind, actual readings.

now it only updates every several days.

by the time you see spikes in radiation they happened days ago.

when the chart was down for over 2 months, I set up another outdoor gamma and beta detector, and have been graphing it every since, so I am still able to provide radiation alerts, and give weekly averages, and check rain samples.

however you can no longer verify those readings, with the EPA chart, until days after the alerts or weekly average readings are announced here.





now, the real story.

the EPA chart, as unreliable and useless as it has become, does show however, a general upward trend, both in background minimums and in the number of higher than average spikes.

the really concerning part is that the minimum background level, which used to go down to around 10 to 15 counts per minute, old charts show, keeps climbing, and is around 100 counts per minute now.

also, rain events used to lower this count, but now it elevates even higher, during rainy weather.

this general upward trend, concentrated during rain, indicates that the environment, is becoming more and more contaminated with radiation, and as this contamination keeps getting worse, the EPA is doing a poorer and poorer job of tracking it only letting us know, now days after, this contamination is occuring.

if you look at all available charts, across the US, you'll likewise see a general upward trend, in some cases quite dramatic, in not only occurrence of spikes, but most importantly, the minimum background levels.

overall average radiation has tripled, in the past year across the US, and is continuing to rise.

and the average radiation here, is even worse, it's now ten times what it was a year ago.

we now only see background minimums, that we used to have for days even weeks at a time, for a matter of hours, after rain events, with much higher than normal radiation levels returning, soon after.

these are now, rare exceptions, which used to be our normal levels.

and during rain events, the radiation level used to go down.

now the radiation during rain, goes up.

the rain itself raises the radiation level, when the rain used to lower it.

the rain is cleaning radioactive dust from the air in all cases now.

whereas before, there was only an occasional plume of radioactive dust, and most of the time the radiation levels were suppressed by the rain.

now the entire atmosphere is contaminated, all the time, with radiation.

and the rain is concentrating this, giving even higher readings, as it concentrates the contamination

so what we were afraid would happen sooner, is slowly becoming true, it's just taken longer.

the models assumed, the radioactive contamination, would disperse faster than it did, but otherwise the end result is the same.

our average background level, has been greatly raised, and the rain is now concentrating this contamination, regularly.

so now stay indoors radiation days, it turns out, include not only hot rain, but also dry dusty windy days, which also show highly elevated levels.

low radiation periods, are now a rare exception, generally right after a rain, when it's just starting to dry out, but before any windy periods.

I thought we would have mostly low radiation levels, with occasional spikes, and occasional hot rain events.

but what measurements now show however, are mostly elevated radiation and even higher levels, during both dry windy weather, and rain.

with only occasional low levels, right after some rain events.

by the criteria I set a year ago, we're under radiation alert, all the time now.

and only occasionally not, right after some rain, then soon back under radiation alert, again.


If I stuck to my original warning criteria, you would be hearing the high radiation alarm, all the time, with it turning off only every few weeks, right after some rain events for a few hours, then back on again.

it's become impracticable, to provide a high radiation warning, since the average minimum background, is so elevated all the time now, and getting worse, that there are no longer spikes of extra high radiation clearly standing out, from what used to be a far lower below warning, average level.

the average background, is slowly drowning the spikes, in other words.

now the average is the high warning level, nearly all the time.

It would be more practicable at this point, to provide low radiation alerts, on the now rare occasion when the level approaches what used to be, our average.

Climate Crisis Deniers Confuse The Average American Mind

by crazy_inventor Tuesday, Sep. 25, 2012 at 4:03 AM

"In the US, the media misinforms and spreads disinformation. The climate crisis and the average American citizens’ attitude to the climate change issue is the evidence.

Wall street capital uses media in this misinformation.

“With serious reporting of global warming by US media virtually nonexistent, it's no wonder Americans are paralyzed in denial of the climate crisis. "

I cite the media here about this all the time - anytime they mention drought, floods or other extreme weather events..

I even have a clip that specifically addresses how they profit off fossil fuel ad's and their sponsors don't whant the listeners to know their own products are destroying our environment, then calling to boycott those advertisers.

Weekly Fukushima update

Weekly Fukushima upd...
cdvcounter.jpg6ryjgo.jpg, image/jpeg, 431x153

Weekly Fukushima update, for.

september twenty ninth, 2012

Radiation levels, over the past week, have averaged, around, 130, counts per minute which is, about, 12 times, normal background level.




an update, on the outdoor, radiation detector.

I've improved the accuracy of the detector, by processing it completely digitally, insted of the, hardware pulse separater, it was using.

the pulse separater was highly temperature dependant, and even though I added temperature compensation, and kept it temperture stabilized,

it was still showing temperature inaccuracy, which was throwing off the reading, plus or minus 20 percent

this fully digital pulse detection is far more accurate, since it's not affected by temperature at all

my original intent for using hardware pulse detection, even though I knew it would exhibit temperature sensitivity, though not as much as it actually does, was to make the detector, small, low power and portable, however, for long term graphing, it's very important to obtain, consistant readings.

so, by feeding the raw signal, into a computer, and using, software D S P, pulse separation, the detection is very consistant now, and yields a much better looking graph.
which matches, quite closely, the E P A chart, no matter what, the weather is like.

alpha detection doesn't have this problem, since alpha particles have a strong charge, and give off a very loud click, well above background noise.

the alpha detector's, raw output, is a, soft hiss, with loud clicking.

but beta and gamma pulses, are half buried in noise, and detection relies on, the sharp spectral spikes, the pulses exhibit.

the hardware separation used a combination of careful threshold and high frequency boost to enhance the separation, but mainly threshold, which is very temperature dependant.

the software D S P approach however, relies completely on the spectral signature which is extremely reliable, since random noise only has a gaussian spectrum.

I did detailed further D S P processing and actual reference source tests to confirm this, I just didn't intend to invest a computer to process the detector, focusing on a portable design.

but the E P A charts, have failed us, since then, so now accuracy, is the priority, and I've also made my chart, look just like theirs.

by adjusting the time scale, to show several days worth of readings, at a time.

not too compressed however, this chart shows sudden spikes in radiation, within 1 minute, and it becomes a clear trend, in 6 minutes.

the E P A chart, shows several months, worth of readings, and a whole day, appears only as, a fat spike.

this chart, spans 5 days, and still shows, minute by minute readings, with a fat spike being around10 to 15 minutes, or so.

I could compress the time scale much more, but I want to see, minute by minute readings.

that way, if there was a sudden big spike in radiation, I could see it in a minute, watch it for a second minute, and issue a radiation alert in 3 or 4 minutes.

the public is therefore alerted, in under 5 minutes

even at it's best, the E P A's system didn't show the radiation spike for a couple of hours.

Many times, I issued radiation alerts, which the E P A's chart confirmed, a few hours afterward.

now, you won't see the confimation, for days.

so it's become even more important, to be as accurate as possible, and still timely, as well.

the radiation charting and alert system, ties up a computer, which I didn't originally intend to do, but the situation with the E P A, has made it important enough, to be worth it.

using a computer ensures upmost accuracy and consistancy, even more important as the long term trend in radiation keeps rising.

I overlaid, 13, U S cities, E P A charts, and you can see, a clear, upward trend.

since this is getting worse, not, better, and since the E P A is failing us, I've devoted a computer, to do the job precisely, that a few parts, were doing, crudely, before.

Solar Power Popular Among American Voters 92% Prefer It

by crazy_inventor Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 at 4:21 AM

Solar Power Popular ...
47820650.jpg, image/jpeg, 380x537

A recent poll from the Pew Research Center found, the only voters likely to view discussion of climate change and clean energy as a negative, are very conservative Tea Party males.


sinkhole update:

tremors felt up to 45 miles away, bubbles up to 20 miles away, a lake 50 miles away is reporting bubbles, they are now saying crude oil is coming up from the sinkhole, while BP's capped well is leaking, with beaches closed around the shoreline

some people claim that radioactive waste, industrial waste and other toxins have been illegally dumped in the salt dome, which is collapsing, spreading this pollution all through the aquifer under pressure from the stored gas (the story has went from butane, to 'natural gas/deposit' to diesel to now crude oil)

Matt Simmons is being talked about, remembering he said that the caverns are all connected, that the leak was never stopped, that it's building up under the sea floor, that the entire area could collaspe and explode, causing a tidal wave and shock wave of heated gas much like a nuclear explosion.

Weekly Fukushima update

Weekly Fukushima update, for.

october fourteenth, 2012

Radiation levels, over the past week, have averaged, around 140 counts per minute, which is about, 13 times, normal background level

No, alpha emissions, have been detected, in rain samples.


Tepco, now publicly admits, knowing of safety problems, before 3 11, and doing nothing about them, which is what they're famous for, bye the way, which lead to, core meltdowns, from the earthquake, not the tidal wave, as has been claimed, up until now.

this means, of course, many, nuclear plants, including a couple dozen here, in the U S, can do exactly the same thing.

and the N R C, fully aware of this, since the day this entirely man-made disaster happened, internal memos show, has done, nothing, since then, to improve safety, at any, of these, identical design, nuke plants.

safety, simply isn't a concern, only profits are.

despite the P R, and media blackout, of this ongoing, entirely man-made, and worsening, disaster, which is slowly contaminating, the entire northern hemisphere, the E P A's own radiation charts show.



in other news, sinkhole and B P update.

A gas pipeline, is floating in the giant sinkhole, and the pipeline is breaking up, into the giant sinkhole, which keeps growing.

Crude oil, now covers, much of the giant sinkhole, and is flowing into surrounding areas.

We don’t know how we’re going to stop the crude oil, from coming to the surface, are now turning to international experts, for help.

the Crude oil, is also contaminating the aquifer, around the giant sinkhole.


Confirmed, by Government tests, the Oil reported in the Gulf, matches, B P’s Macondo Well.

substantial amounts, of fresh oil, in the Gulf, around B P’s Macondo reservoir, B P’s fresh oil is coming from fractures in ocean floor, just as Matt Simmons warned.

Simmons claimed, these oil reservoirs are connected through underground chambers, and the extremely high pressure oil, once released by B P, eventually will cause these caverns to collapse, potentially resulting in, a huge earthquake, tidal wave, gas and oil release, explosion, and shock wave.

these recent events, suggest this may be the case, with the evidence mounting more every day.

Here's _tomorrows_ election results :)

election_results_shown_1_day_early.jpg1258lx.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x600

I found this rather amusing ^

and this -

[bloomberg] - "It's global warming stupid"

A troll (you know who you are) has been spoofing my nic on the moonofalabama blog. I noticed it yesterday, and set the record straight - using my secret e-mail that the troll doesn't know.. IMC knows it, that blog knows it, exiled knows it, washingtons blog knows it, hack-a-day knows it. The spoofer does not.

Radiation levels continue to rise, but the website where I was getting the charts has been destroyed by global warming induced flooding. I will take longer and is more trouble to compile that chart now. What used to take 15-20 min will now take a couple of hours.

Thank you global warming denialists.

"I" didn't "win" - they didn't "fail"

by crazy_inventor Wednesday, Nov. 07, 2012 at 10:05 PM

It's not about winning or losing, I see either of them being elected as a loss for the working poor.

Notice the popular count totals - around 10 %

- this means 9 out of 10 people consider the whole election a sham. I bet if a third party candidate were really on the ticket (had an actual chance of being elected) the voter turnout would be 3 or 4 times higher at least.

Maybe even 70 -80 % (if there were a real choice people would turn out in droves)



But the real loss is how the radiation keeps going up and

1.) very few people seem concerned
2.) the media blackout
3.) lack of tracking even by the scientific community

it's like everyone has their head buried in the sand thinking if they just ignore it, it will go away (or at least not affect them)


when the dying begins, then they'll act surprised. And make no mistake - this is exactly what it leads to, the background count is over 10 times what it used to be before fukushima (right now here it's running over 15 times)


Just like many people ignore global warming - feed into it, then act surprised when a never before seen superstorm hits..


It all boils down to kicking the can down the road. Everyone is invested in kicking the can.

Everyone that is, except the one's already chewed up and spat out by the system. But they, like these environment issues, also likewise being ignored.

More & more people are becoming poor.

But as long as those still in the system can get by, they don't really care.

A tipping point when the number of such people become too large to ignore will eventually happen.

It will be called "Occupy 2.0"

Since 1958 Congress and the military had already been working on exotic weather warfare systems that involved electromagnetic manipulation of the ionosphere.


US Congress, Senate, Committee on Inter-State and Foreign Commerce, Weather Modification Research, Hearing, Washington D.C. US Govt. Printing Offlce, March 18-19, 1958; Lowell Ponte quotes Capt. Orville as reporting “that the Dept. of Defense was studying ways to manipulate the charges of earth and sky and so affect the weather by means of an electronic beams to ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area” …. Capt. Orville also discussed ongoing US Air Force experiments with ‘sodium vapor, ejected from jet planes to intercept solar radiation ‘ over enemy countries and rain their weather.

2012 another winter that wasn't 'heh heh...'

by crazy_inventor Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 at 8:08 PM

2012 another winter ...
record_setting_cold_my_ass.png, image/png, 600x524

winter 2012 median temperatures

Winter of 2012 Named 4th-Warmest for US

http://www.livescience.com/18896-fourth-warmest-winter-2012.html

here, we only got a little snow once, and it's been too warm (above freezing) to snow the rest of the winter.

When we moved here 15 years ago, we used to see temps down to -15*, snow that stayed for up to a few weeks, freezing pipes. The lowest temp we had this winter was ~ +20*, almost 35 * warmer, minimum - the coldest point of winter. The last several winters here were winters that weren't.

but thats just local weather - what really matters is climate (temps all over averaged)

the chart above shows that..

so, where's that 'record setting cold' you promised ?

Get This: Warming Planet Can Mean More Snow : NPR

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123671588


"The fact that the oceans are warmer now than they were, say, 30 years ago means there's about on average 4 percent more water vapor lurking around over the oceans than there was, say, in the 1970s," he says.

Warmer water means more water vapor rises up into the air, and what goes up must come down.

"So one of the consequences of a warming ocean near a coastline like the East Coast and Washington, D.C., for instance, is that you can get dumped on with more snow partly as a consequence of global warming," he says.



Meteorologist Jeff Masters, with the Web site Weather Underground, says it's average temperatures — not snowfall — that really measure climate change.


'average temperatures' - so again, wheres that 'record setting cold' you promised?
